Mohammad Azharuddin, the Indian captain, was nursing a tender right thigh in his side's victory over Kenya, but the injury has improved. "I'm not fully fit, but it's much better today," he said.
The West Indies' main doubt concerns Keith Arthurton, who missed yesterday's practice session with a cold. However, he may be left out even if he is fit, as Richie Richardson, their captain, is considering recalling Jimmy Adams, omitted from the victory over Zimbabwe.
Richardson picked out the Northamptonshire leg-spinner Anil Kumble as their main threat: "He's a top-class spin bowler. He's unorthodox with his height and pace off the wicket."Reuse content
